The executive governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has described President Buhari’s declaration to seek re-election in 2019 as one that is dead on arrival.
The governor who stated this on his Twitter handle, @GovAyoFayose, said Buhari’s was old and that he has also failed at all fronts.
“That 2nd term ambition of President Buhari is dead on arrival. We don’t want Grandpa as president anymore. Nigeria does not deserve a Buhari as president in 2019. He is old and tired.When people don’t know when to take their leave & say bye, Nigerians will show them the exit door”.
Fayose added that Buhari has failed even in his fight against corruption which many believed is lopsided and vindictive.
“Buhari has failed in all fronts. He has failed in his so-called fight against corruption, he has failed in the economic front. He has not done well in term of security. Gruesome killing of Nigerians is now a daily occurrence in Nigeria”, Fayose tweeted.
The governor went further to add that the Buhari-led Federal Government has done more harm than good to Nigeria and Nigerians and therefore will be shown the exit door come 2019.
“Buhari has done more harm to this country. His ambition is a means by which Nigerians will tell him good riddance to bad rubbish when they boot him out of office. He is an easy candidate to defeat in the poll because he has failed woefully”, he said.
It will be recalled that the president who before the 2015 general election hath said that he was only contesting for just one term, suddenly declared to re – contest for another term of four years early today when he met with the National Working Committee Members of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The president’s declaration has ignited several reactions both from the opposition, the PDP and the ruling party, the APC.
